Glimmering Snow and Shimmering Lights

Once again Christmas is upon us but unlike when I was younger and anxiously awaited Santa’s arrival the holidays have now become meaningless.  Malls and other retailers displaying Christmas merchandise as early as October since the holiday is  now all about how they can all meet and surpass their quotas.   While  I’m as disillusioned as one could be pertaining to Christmas as well as New Year’s Eve which is my least favorite holiday there are certain things I’m absolutely enamored with such as snow globes.  Ever since I remember seeing my first snow globe when I was in kindergarten I’ve been completely enthralled with them.  Miniature artwork from tiny people to innumerable other objects figure enclosed in glass filled with water and artificial snow while atop a ceramic figure is so serene and when you shake it the synthetic snow disperses all over making it appear as if it’s a glass-filled fantasy.  

It’s amazing how many styles of snow globes, also referred to as water globes exist.  Cities, animals and landmarks just to name a few that are captivating to look at.  There are variations of snow globes including ones that light up, play music and have electric motors enabling automatic snow to swirl around without having to be shaken and every time I turn one of those on it makes me wish I were inside that very glass-encased globe with fake or real (depending on my mood) snow fluttering all around me.  Talk about a major Winter Wonderland.


Objects made with LED lights are another dazzling creation I revel in looking at.  Whether it’s of a flashing snowman, Santa or a number of other eye-catching items they’re enchanting to look at especially while watching real-life crime shows which may explain why I own several.  In fact, just a few days ago when I was finishing the last of my dreaded holiday shopping I came across a magical night light that not only interchanges between three color modes it also has a star mode so when it turns on multiple stars along with the moon appear.  All that’s missing are hearts, clovers, diamonds and horseshoes which are shape of the marshmallows in Lucky Charms cereal.  Now I totally want a bowl of  Lucky Charms but only if the little leprechaun appears.  I guess they really are magically delicious!
